Zagame’s House’ famous Lord Lygon wine shop.

Premium travel club Mr & Mrs Smith has added Zagame’s House in Melbourne as its sixth property in the Victorian capital, joining an exclusive collection of boutique properties in far-flung corners of the world.

Members will have access to discounted rates, exclusive free extras on arrival and around-the-clock Smith travel assistance on-call during stays at Zagame’s House, which becomes the 59th property in Australia to be part of the exclusive network.

It has been a big year for Zagame’s Hospitality following the opening of its first fully-managed boutique property earlier this year when the group made a push into the wider accommodation sector beyond its extensive and decorated history in pub-style hospitality.

Membership of the Mr & Mrs Smith collection is a lengthy process, with each property hand-picked by curators and then personally visited by a mystery-shopping couple eager to experience and provide a written review on the experience, paying particular attention to style and trend along with value for money and customer service.

Zagame’s House General Manager, Adam Taloni, said it was an honour for the property to become part of the exclusive collection.

“To be sitting within the same league of international hotel brands like The Oberoi and The Ampersand highlights the truly unique hotel experience that we offer at Zagame’s House.”
